You are looking for something like this:

http://www.findu.com/cgi-bin/plot.cgi?call=*&geo=http://mm.aprs.net/terra.cgi?
call=KG6VYD-1|scale=32

or

http://www.findu.com/cgi-bin/map-near.cgi?call=KG6VYD-1

There are a huge number of combinations with findU, there is a limit to how many
I can create links to, for some things you will always need to get under the
hood. However, I've provided a bunch of building blocks, and what I really hope
to encourage is to get people to go under the hood, and start playing with the
more advanced features...
